Speaking of butchering comfortably numb
The CJ cover is inspired and the rewrite of the “heavenly” section is a vast improvement.
i actually kinda liked this when it came out. the guitar duel at the end is Reb Beach and Dweezil Zappa going at it. certainly not as good as Frank Marino's cover but not really all that bad.
Check out Malmsteen's new blues disc. You may change your mind, especially if you actually manage to sit through the entire thing.
And that wasn’t even their most ill-advised cover. They played “It’s All Over Now” while opening for the Stones.
I like Molly Hatchet's version of BOTH songs FAR above the originals, because they make them ROCK.
Subtlety and nuance are for wimps!
how about a song that's perfectly fine to cover, but the cover, at first, seems blasphemous
operative word is "seems", since it's now, by far, the definitive version
how about if we go two levels deep
it brings me great joy that the guitar player has music in front of him for it
Hatchet is easy to make fun of, but they did a great job with that cover of Dreams.
I cringe every time I hear GnR doing Dylan's "Knocking on heavens door".
And a few yrs back I heard GnR doing a version of Sympathy for the devil. I thought it was a parody , it has every bad thing about Axl all rolled into one song.
Not an exact answer to the OP but the one i though would be blasphemous suckage that pissed me off before i even heard it was Belly doing "Are You Experienced". They crushed it though, great cover and they really did it well live, which is even more impressive.
Totally agree. Eyeeee eyyeeee eyyyyyyy Ug.
I've honestly never gotten to the end. I get chills down my spine and have to shut it off.
Ok, so I have to ask: How does one become aware of a Mongolian throat singing version of Joy Division?
I SOOOOO beg to differ!
I bet these guys were paid in their choice of either onion rings or tater tots.
I thought the claim was settled out of court?
